Francine Lewis

"The best female impressionist in the country" The Sun

Francine started doing impressions of her teachers and fellow pupils when she was only 5 years old. As a teenager she became a soap addict and picked up the voices and mannerism of many of the characters, so started entering talent shows for fun. Francine is now widely acknowledged as one of the top female impressionists in the UK. She's also one of the few performers who can appeal to a wide ranging audience from Children's TV (such as her appearances on 'FULLY BOOKED' and 'CBBC') through to trendy late night shows.

In her late teens Francine appeared on Garry Bushell's television show "BUSHELL ON THE BOX", and soon became a regular. This in turn brought her to the attention of LWT and she was offered a slot on "THE BIG BIG TALENT SHOW" presented by Jonathan Ross. She won her heat by a mile, guaranteeing her a second appearance in the final.

Since then her TV career has taken off. Her stunning spot on "TALKING TELEPHONE NUMBERS" led to her becoming a regular presenter on Channel 5 "5'S COMPANY", Sky's "LIVE 6 SHOW" and Team Captain for three series on the cult show "NIGHT FEVER".

Francine also presented the BBC's "DAILY LIVE" show with Paul Ross and brought extra glamour and comedy to "THE GENERATION GAME" on BBC 1 for two series. Capital Radio then offered Francine a weekly show that turned out to be a huge success. She was then asked to present 'FLYING START' for Carlton Television while at the same time presenting 'VPL' for Granada TV. Later she stormed Ian Wright's show 'FRIDAY NIGHT'S ALL WRIGHT' and the highly rated daytime show 'LOOSE WOMEN'.

Francine was voted 'Top Telly Totty' by the readers of The Sun and they recently referred to her as being the best female impressionist in the country. She's become a favourite with magazines and has featured in Maxim, FHM and OK.

Francine's talent for mimicking people has also lead to lots of voice-over work. You've probably heard her on many a TV or Radio advertisement without even realizing it's Francine.

Although impressions and presenting are Francine's forte, her acting ability has gained her roles in many stage productions including Aladdin, Bugsy Malone, Minstral Spectacular '95, Snow White and Babes in the Wood. She also stared in the stage play 'Eternal Flame' which toured the UK and was directed by 'John Conway'. In 2003 she filmed her first feature film 'Suzy Gold' alongside Summer Pheonix.

Francine took a short career break at the end of 2005 to have her second baby. However, she is now very much back in business and recently filmed 'Spoof!' for the BBC - a new impressionist show to be piloted in January 2007.
